Next Steps: Postproduction

This year has seen a rapid acceleration in the democratization of high-end postproduction via the desktop system. Evolutionary advances in operating systems, software applications, plug-ins, access to real-time effects, and the capacity to work in HD have given filmmakers an arsenal of new tools. Concurrent advances in transfer rates, processing speed, storage, and DVD authoring have made the desktop more powerful and flexible than ever. This discussion assembles producers, editors, and other professionals to examine how today’s technology influences the creative decision-making process. What is the role of “skill” and “craft” in postproduction? Moderated by David Hays, executive producer, EFILM.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
